Inspired by Stamping Colour, silver and gold.

Hello, I'm back with this week's challenge from Inspired by Stamping, this week we are asking you to use the colours, blue, silver and gold.

Here's this week's stunning inspiration photo.

Such gorgeous Christmas colours, here's my card.

I've used the new Vintage Postcards Add-On 1, which works with the Vintage Postcards stamp set, I also used some of the new Gold Glitter Tape. I matted the postcard onto some silver glitter card and stamped some postmarks. I used foam pads to mount the stamp giving it a bit of dimension.
I learnt a great trick at the retreat, to get the perforated edge around the stamp, punch holes along the edge and trim down to make a semi-circle.

Here's a photo which makes it a bit clearer.
